Decision Rooms

A Battalion at Camp Lejeune has set up Decision Rooms in the barracks. It started out with 14 computers in June. Now it has well over 200 computers and 6 Decision Rooms in the barracks that is open 24/7 for the Marines to use.

Doesn't tear up vehicles, less chance of injuries, doesn't take up as much room...awesome.

We're seeing more VR training coming into the LE scene. It is amazing in terms of possibilities.

We screwed up on numerous occasions.....

When we first deployed the Deployable Virtual Training Environment (DVTE), we sent over 8,000 Dell M6300s out to the Battalions in 2006-2008. The computers and the software was completely locked down, the units couldn't add new software that hadn't been through Government Acceptance Testing.

The Simulation Centers ended up taking control of the computers and contractors did the training. It became just as difficult scheduling simulation training as it was scheduling live fire training.

The LtCol called me back in May to see if there was something that could be done to break the cycle. Currently the DVTE consists of Dell M6800, the old 6300s are supposed to be turned in for destruction because they are no longer a program of record. What we did was get the old computers to make the 8 Decision Rooms in the Battalion. They are no longer part of a program so it doesn't matter what is put on them.

We also got the Office of Naval Research (ONR) involved, that is why in addition to the simulations you see drones capturing highly detailed 3D maps of Lejeune and with the holo glasses the Marines can do the estimate of the situation by 'entering' the terrain at ground level.

The good news is that the General's are liking what they see....a Battalion creating a new capability using old out of date equipment. I think they will be unlocking the DVTE in the near future and probably making the DVTE mirror the Decision Rooms.

The great thing about this is that the Marines have 24/7 access to the rooms because they are in the Barracks. They go in there and game each other sometimes over beers at 02:00 in the morning.

The Marine Corps Gazette is going to be running articles on this next month,

I would think for security you would just have them on a non dod network

I know at work I got one computer for company and another to run programs that I have do not have to go through the company IT waiting a few days to install software is a pain or downloading data

Keep in mind, this is an Infantry Battalion that is doing this. This same Battalion took Super Squad competition this year.

FEX II; Terrain study using HoloLens to get a 3 D first person view of the objective. The 3D terrain was made using their Phantom DJ quad copter.
